You’re here, so you must be looking for a good weight loss workout. So what are the keys to having one? You should include some form of interval training, make it fun, and not monotonous. When you’re done reading this article you’ll be able to design your own weight loss workout, and actually lose some weight.
We’re going to start with some technical stuff first, and then move to the more motivational. Interval training is one of the most effective ways to burn fat. So what exactly is interval training? Interval training is any exercise where you exert a high-level of effort for a very short period of time, followed by a low-level of effort for a short period, repeatedly for some time. Possible exercises for interval training include, and aren’t limited to, running, skipping, jumping, jumping jacks, and anything else you can do in this format.
Make It Fun
Whatever weight loss workout you pick you have to make it fun. What are the reasons for this? If it’s a fun program, you’re much more likely to stick to it. Are you more likely to want to exercise if it’s really fun, or if it’s really boring and you would rather pull your teeth out? Either way, having fun is an end in and of itself. Having fun is a very important part of life. If something that you’re planning to do every day for the rest of your life (which is what your exercise program ideally ought to be) isn’t going to be fun, you should really re-think your strategy.
Make sure that your weight loss workout is not monotonous. If you’ve made sure it’s something fun, and not something boring, it’s probably not going to be monotonous. But either way, if you’re doing the same thing all the time, your body gets bored and stops burning fat. Switching it up also keeps it entertaining for you. That way, you don’t get bored. Getting bored is actually much worse than not having fun. At least being in a place that is incredibly bad for you isn’t boring. Being bored with your exercise is one surefire way to end up not ever doing it.
There are several very important things you can do to make sure your workout is an effective one. Those things are interval training, making it fun, and not monotonous. Now get out there, and get exercising!
